One of our regular offerings for the Caravan of Unity bridging events is this story series based on the theme of ‘Awakening’;

A Day in the life of Julian of Norwich; fortnightly story series hosted by ISISIALLTHINGS

Julian of Norwich was a 14th Century mystic and visionary who understood the power of mindfulness and contemplation on our higher nature and sense of gratitude for life itself.  She became fully awakened when she had an NDE (near death experience) at 30 and was shown the totally unconditional love of the Source of all that is. The 16 visions she received sustained her spiritual inner world for over 40 years in self- isolation through many plagues, during which time she was inspired to write a book, “Divine Revelations of Love”.

Part 5 “Margery Kempe and the Hazelnut”

Lady Julian meets Margery Kempe in the tiny church garden and reveals that she is secretly writing the long version of her book, to which news Margery excitedly responds in delight as she also wishes to write an account, but a more bawdy tale about her shortcomings and colourful lifestyle as well as her visions and lamentations as a humble sinner.
